What happens when I exceed my monthly transfer for my droplet?

August 14, 2014 3.7k views

If I reach my monthly transfer will the network be blocked or will it the bandwidth be lowered? Or do I have to pay a special extra network transfer fee?

This is probably written somewhere but I can't seem to find ti.

Per Pricing | DigitalOcean:

Additional bandwidth transfer is only 2¢ per GB

Once you cross your free bandwidth limit, you will be charged $0.02 per extra GB of outbound traffic.

We are not charging for bandwidth currently, so you don't have to worry about that. Once we start doing that, all customers will be notified.

Would also like to know the answer to the above question!

Furthermore, is there a way to monitor the amount of total data transfer we have used within a given billing period?

I wonder if it is still like that. "not charging for bandwidth currently".
